Answering a Reader Question #208

Brooklyn Wrote:

I'm Brooklynn

I have always wanted to model specially for Victoria secret. I'm 18 years old at 5'5" 125lb with a curvy body. I'm not signed with any agency but is there anything that could help me towards becoming a Victoria secret model? 

Hi, Brooklyn! Unfortunately, you aren't tall enough to be a Victoria's Secret model. Your weight and body type are right but you need to be fashion height in order to be considered (5'8" - 6'0") and you would have to be an agency represented model by Elite or Ford in New York (or another top fashion modeling agency in that market). At your age you more than likely won't get taller so sadly, VS probably won't be possible for you. However, you are the ideal height for commercial/print modeling. I would strongly recommend looking into agencies with commercial/print modeling divisions and submitting yourself.

dI am nearly five ten and have the measurements for a model. The only thing is that I don't have a slight frame (if that makes sense) will this cause problems if I try to pursue a career in modelling?

Hi Dania,

I wonder about fashion height requirements. I thought 5'7 was the minimum? I am 5'7 and I was told that I am too short for runway by some and that I barely make it by others. Can you give me a definite answer?
